Toilet-bound Hanako-kun is an anime series released in 2020 that blends comedy and supernatural elements. The anime was created by the Lerche studio, whom we know from beloved anime such as Astra Lost in Space and Given, and was directed by Masaomi Andō in the first season. With its other name, Jibaku Shōnen Hanako-kun has originally premiered from January 9, 2020, to March 26, 2020, on TBS, SUN, CBC, BS-TBS. Thanks to Funimation‘s licensing, and Hulu TV‘s airing, it gained viewers from all over the world. After the series made a season final with the episode “The Little Mermaid”, the fans started the wonder about the next season’s status and the release date of the 2nd season of the anime series. We have compiled what we know about the series so far and the news about the second season. So far, the anime’s first season has received many positive reviews from most viewers, and many fans are already hoping for a second season. It’s also among the best anime shows of the season, according to many anime viewers. So, will there be a second season of the anime?

What is the plot of Toilet-bound Hanako-kun?

Various rumors circulate at the Komame Academy about Hanako-san, one of the school’s Seven Mysteries. Hanako-san, which has settled in the third toilet compartment of the girls’ toilet on the third floor of the old school building, grant the summons any wish when called by someone.

Yashiro Nene, a freshman in high school whose mind is full of romantic dreams, also steps into this haunted toilet. As a result of the events, he becomes Nene Hanako’s assistant and tries to balance the spiritual and physical world with him.

Toilet-bound Hanako-kun

In the past, Lerche Studio gave us great anime like ‘Given ‘and ‘Kanata no Astra. With the new anime adaptation ‘Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun’, the studio gives us another epic show featuring flawless animation, an enticing story, and some unforgettable cute characters. Although it started as a comedy anime initially limited to a high school, it contains plenty of secrets and some dark events in its depth.

As the season progresses and more into the school’s underlying mysteries, it turns into a masterful horror anime. So far, it has clearly reached its true potential, and we hope it will get even better in season two. In the first season, the characters are introduced, but nobody’s inner world is descended. The events are also a mystery. The series will get deeper with a possible second season.

Will there be a second season of Toilet-bound Hanako-kun?

The last update on May 3, 2021: At the time of writing, Toilet-bound Hanako-kun has not yet been renewed for a second season. Neither Manga publisher Square Enix, animation studio Lerche nor Funimation has confirmed the second season. We can only speculate right now. We can look at the popularity and source material adequacy to see if the anime will have a second season. There does not seem to be any problem in terms of popularity, and the ratings of the series are quite sufficient. Everything was good except disc sales. Disc sales of the anime were around 1500. Considering the disc sales alone, it looks unsuccessful, but we shouldn’t forget the exclusive distributors. The anime is also very popular in Japan and distributed by many exclusive distributors. (D Anime Store, Amazon Prime Video, U-Next, Netflix) The fact that these distributors publish the anime means extra profit besides the disc sales. Therefore, the second season looks promising in many ways. As you can see in the anime list, Hanako-kun’s score is 78.4%, and this score is quite enough for a second season. So how about manga?

Manga status of the anime

As we mentioned at the beginning of our article, the anime is adapted from the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Iro Aida. The manga series, which started to be published in 2014, is published in Japan by Square Enix. Yen Press publishes the English translation of the series. The good news is that the manga is still ongoing. Sales of the manga series seem strong, and the cumulative circulation has already exceeded 2 million last year. The last volume of the manga, which consists of 15 volumes in total, has not yet been translated into English, but it was published on April 27, 2021, in Japan.

When is the release date of season 2?

The anime is a faithful adaptation of a total of 15 published original manga of Iro Aida. Since the first season covers 7 volumes of the manga, there is enough script if the producers will use 7 volumes again. However, of course, it is also important how many volumes the producers want to cover for a new season. If there will be a season that will consist of 7 volumes as in the first season, preparations will begin because the manga’s last volume has just been released. Considering all these, we can see a new season at the end of 2021, but renewal is required first. We will update it when the renewal news comes. Stay tuned!

Hello, this is Kadir. I am the lead author of the blog you are reading. My fondness for TV series and Anime made me a good researcher about the release dates. I like to share my researches and analyses on the blog.

  1. I don’t feel like it is finished at all, it will still continue … Anyway, we will look at the rest of the manga. I can’t wait for the new season anymore: “)

    • I feel the same! I just finished, and I really want the Habakkuk and nene ship to officially happen!! I’m desperate! Please!

  2. I really hope Toilet bound gets a new season. It is so good already and it would be a shame if it didn’t.

  3. It was very different and, at the same time, great anime. Aside from the scenes where my heart is broken, the scenes where I burst into laughter are the other side. I’ve already fallen in love with the scenes Hanako and Yashiro. 💜💜

    Whatever anyone said, it was definitely worth watching. The first episode was a little ridiculous when I first watched it, but now I look at it from a different perspective. Now that the anime is over, it looks like we’ll continue with the manga; I cannot wait for a second season.

  4. Sigh, they totally forgot about my baby boy Mitsuba in the main characters section.

    • True Mitsuba has been through all kinds of misfortunes regarding physiological pain. So to have him not be there 😤

  5. This series has to carry on; it is my favorite anime it cant end at 12 episodes like No Game No Life. ☹ I can’t wait longer if it does have a season 2.

  6. This is another favorite of mine. I was so skeptical with the name but it’s pretty perfect. Dark yet hilarious, super cute but with subtle sexual references. The characters all have such a rich personality and the secrets behind the school and Hanako leave you wanting more and more. I haven’t read the manga yet but it’s on my list.

  7. If I don’t get a season 2 of toilet-bound hanako-kun I will protest out on the streets, and this show is so good. I love fantasy anime, and this has to be one of the best fantasy anime since it also has a hint of romance, mystery, and emotions.

  8. I can’t end at ep 12 with one season. It needs to be more season, not one or two seasons more. This show is good. 😭 It needs to keep going. Hopefully, this year, they make more seasons.

  9. Hopefully, they do make another season its funny and romantic at the same time 😭❤️

  10. I will start a petition if Toilet bound Hanako-kun doesn’t get another Season!

  11. Oh my gosh! I finished the season, and I’m desperate for more seasons! I will protest as well! It is a very good show, and it should not stop there!
